The next day it was estimated that the value of these cattle had in creased from 30/ to £2 each on account of the rain Those who purchased were greatly pleased with their enterprize, while those who sold have been kicking themselves ever since. In the morning (before v the rain) a resideut asked a farmer the price of a ton of chaff, and was told, " Three pounds five a ton, and you'll be lucky to get it for that. ' You'll have to find the bags, too." The resident said he was not in a hurry, and could wait for a year;, or two'.

The Dredging Question. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914
The Dredging Question. (By " Miranda." After money has been invested in ,the construction of dredges, " Mir anda " seriously regrets that any calamity should overtake investors. In like manner he deplores landhol ders being cast adrift after making necessary provision for life-long ease and comfort. Those people who evidently have not a spark of practi cal wisdoip to guide them appear to be the most foremost to go into' hysterics, and seemingly brood over the opinion that in the Bright dis-" trict the means of livelihood of 2000 people has been seriously threatened by the action of anti-dredgers." Truly a feeble echo of curious and wholly unlooked for pollution of thought when a 1' higher and purer atmosphere " is reached in which one can reason that the dredging in dustry seeks to unearth the very • foundation of the farmer's home, and cast thousands adrift to the four winds of heaven. In this regard, unfortunately, the baldheaded intel: . lects of greedy, grasping boodleites prese...

Prohibition in Kansas. Dr Sheldon, who is at present on a lecturing tour through Australia and'New Zealand, says there is not a single brewery or distillery- in Kansas. ' All brewers and liquor men are H classed as criminals. Whereas iii Britain, he declared, the brewers are sent • to the House of IyOrds, in Kansas they are sent to gaol. Kansas had the highest per capita wealth &lt; of any State in America, and tfhe smallest percent age of paupers. As a result of the prohibition law drinking in social circles has gone out of fashion, and Dr Sheldon stated that he did not know a single minister who either smoked or diank.
